My husband was sentenced in November 2012 with four A felonies, drug charges.

Edinburg, TX |

He was charged with possesion and deliver of meth. And also possesion and deliver of cociane. How much time of those five years will he be doing in jail?

  1. There is not nearly enough information here to answer this. I assume you mean first degree felonies? Was there a deadly weapon finding? If so, he has to do at least half of his time before he is probation eligible. Even if not, when or if he is paroled is up to the parole board. No one can tell you when or if that will happen. I would say on four cases he will be in most of the five. They will also take his criminal history into consideration.

  2. Most likely less than a year, but it depends on other factors.

  3. Can you please provide additional details regarding this? Are you talking about federal charges or state charges? Your question is flagged a a federal crime issue.

  4. Really need more information to answer your question. No one can predict parole. Generally a quarter to a half.
